We weren’t expecting to get a dog for Christmas…and then last Tuesday, and a friend of ours of ours put an adorable chihuahua-daschund mix (also known as a chaweenie) up for adoption. When we found out he was already crate trained and had the basic commands down, Jon and I had a feeling he might be the dog for us (I’ve always known I could never handle a puppy that needed heavy training from the moment we brought it home; I just don’t have the patience). Amy brought Maxwell over on Christmas Eve, and by the time it got dark, we had a puppy.
So far, he’s adjusting quite well to his new environment, and only seemed to have the most minor separation anxiety. He of course wants to play with the degus, and they want nothing to do with him, but we put their cages up on card tables so he can’t get in their faces. Now all the pets are happy! Jon and I are totally in love with him. So without further ado, here is a bunch of puppyspam!

Congrats on the puppy! I have a soft spot for black dogs and he looks perfect. Hope you enjoy each other very much!
Thanks! I totally adore him. Watching him play with his new favorite toy is even more fun than watching TV. He’s too cute!
Congrats on your adoption but I have to tell you, I don’t have fond memories of chihuahuas. They’re vicious and have something like a short man complex. I can’t tell you how many chased me as a kid. Maybe some kid around the block from you will be luckier than I was since yours is mixed with another breed.
Anyway, on a much better note, Happy New Year to you and even the pup. 🙂
How cute! Congrats. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this Christmas present. 🙂
He is such a cutie! I love little dogs. What a great addition to the family!
